Creating a Custom Action or Adjustment

In the action tab

In the actions panel you can create custom actions from two places: From the ... icon on the right side of the tab or from the ...  icon directly to a custom action group.

When a custom action is not created into a group it will be added after the groups as a separate action, it can be dragged or copied into a group after creating it. 

When you have selected the type of custom action you want to create the corresponding action editor will pop up on the lower left corner of the screen allowing you to customize the action. 

Straight from the device

You can also create a custom action direcly to a vacant touch button by clicking the + action on the button and selecting the type of custom action you want to create.

When created the new custom action will be added to the custom action list from which it can be moved to any custom action group.


Customizing the action

Once you have selected the action you want to create the action editor will pop up below the action panel. Depending on your custom action choice the parameters for customizing will vary.

After you have created the custom action you can add an icon to it to personalize the action.
